STEM2STEAM: Using Digital Media 4 Science Learning
Today’s teens send snapchats instead of email, upload YouTube vlogs instead of keeping diaries, and use emoji’s instead of words. They communicate visually and collectively - and yet science is still predominately taught through textbook. And we wonder, ‘where are all the young people in STEM?’
At the New York Hall of Science, we're combining young people's passion for digital media and with professional video production training – to create the next generation of creative STEM advocates.
This first-of-its-kind program demonstrates how adding arts to STEM (to create ‘STEAM’), can inspire student learning across many kinds of STEM education institutes –from schools to libraries & museums.
